New Zealander Singer Songwriter Hollie Fullbrook and a track from the album “Brightly Painted One” Having previously worked as a solo artist, New Zealand singer-songwriter Hollie Fullbrook took the moniker of Tiny Ruins back in 2009. With bassist Cass Basil and drummer Alex Freer added to the line-up, Tiny Ruins released its sophomore album, “Brightly Painted One”, this year on Bella Union. There is a beguiling subtlety to the record, highlighted by Fullbrook’s delicate finger-picked guitar work, her softly longing vocals and sensitive accompaniments by her band mates.

this trio from Peterborough but now Brighton based on the Heavenly Record label, The impact of Kristian Bell’s cauterizing yowl of a voice isn’t fully appreciated until you hear The Wytches thrash their way through a live set. The Brighton trio might channel Nirvana or Soundgarden in their vigorous head tossing and thicket of brutish guitar, but their sound is as wild and eerily gothic as the hound of the Baskervilles galloping over the moors. You just hope that Bell is taking care of his voice.

Happyness have been one of my favourite bands of the year, The alt rock band have smooth slacker melodies and vocal infections that recall “Pavement” thick bass line and guitar lines make a brilliant musical combination, the band are just perfect.Debut album “Weird Little Birthday” leaves “Happyness” as one of the best bands and is a superb follow up to the self titled EP released last January.
